The Journey Begins

Welcome to my blog! As said in my description this is a personal blog for the purpose of sharing opinion pieces on the current state of our world and giving everyone a lens into my life.

This blog will have multiple posts a week, but once a week I’ll update with a quote and a bio on an important person in the modern day social justice sphere. Each month will have a theme of type of people who will be featured for a week. Since it’s Black History Month, February’s theme is: Inspirational Black Women

I hope you enjoy my blog, feel free to reach out to me anytime!

Quote of the week: “Being a part of this reemergence of a movement both pro-diversity and pro-woman is the best part of being a Black girl. It’s more than, “I stand for this because I should.” I stand for this because this is part of who I am as a human being.” – Yara Shahidi

What she’s done for Social Justice: Yara Shahidi attended and spoke at the Women’s March in Los Angeles, California on January 21st, 2017. She consistently shows up, and uses her status, and platform, for good. Shahidi often does interviews about her life, and her personal connections to social justice. In addition, she uses her social media prescience to support hashtags and to uplift those in the social justice sphere.
